1.0.3 fails to verify RSA signature, 1.0.2 is OK

Why do you use the rsaref module instead of the normal rsa module, which is already integrated in gpg 1.0.3? Maybe this comment from the rsaref.c source applies: RSAREF is limited in key size and in the coding of the encrypted data. Everything that passes through RSAREF must be coded in PCKS #1. The GPG module interface places no such restriction on the module itself, but fortunately it happens to pass PCKS #1 coded data in. It is transparently decoded and recoded as necessary. -- ir. J.C.A.
